THE PATH OF PERFECTION, CHAPTER 9 : DESTINATION AFTER DEATH.
“I worship Govinda, the primeval Lord, only the tips of the toes of whose lotus feet are approached by the yogis and jnänis, who travel for billions of years at the speed of the wind or mind.” We can all understand how great the speed of mind is. Although sitting in New York City, I can immediately think of India, which is thousands and thousands of miles away. It is herein stated that even if one travels at this speed for billions of years, Krsna will still remain inconceivable. The word muni-pungavänäm refers to a great thinker, not an ordinary man. Even if such a great thinker travels for millions of years at the speed of mind, he will still find the Supreme Person unknowable. Yet for one who takes undeviatingly to this path of Krsna consciousness, Krsna is easy to obtain. Why is this? Nitya-yuktasya yoginah: “Because such a person is constantly engaged in My devotional service, and I cannot forget him.” So this is the process. We have only to become submissive to attract the attention of God. My Guru Mahäräja used to say, “Don’t try to see God, but work in such a way that God will see you. God will take care of you. You don’t have to try to see Him.”
